I know, I know, still in the 80's. For those of you who continually rant against this era, your criticisms have been heard and noted for the record so please don't feel the need to bash this choice, we know already. But for those who do have a soft spot for this run, this show is an outstanding example. The BRRB and LIG are absolutely phenomenal. Despite whatever physical issues the Fat Man was dealing with, his playing here seems totally unaffected. His fingers are blazing with the white hot intensity of a thousand suns (I may have used that comparison before...Rob, want to look it up?). This show truly packs a punch that will give you that burst of energy so welcome at the end of a long week. So, in honor of Jerry, break open a few Twinkies, cook up some Persian and blast this one.

Oh, yeah, and a TDIH in advance for this weekend from the same run, if you haven't heard the first set from Lake Placid 10/17/83 you simply must do so, the Sugaree is beyond immense...perhaps one of the all time greats.

I'm not an 80's guy, but I think this show is pretty good. It is worthy of a listen. Though to be honest it's probably the only 1983 show I've ever listened to, and I only listened to parts of it, AND it's been a while, but I remember liking it. Either way, I can give it a nod.

Did Trey ever really "get it?"

Fall 83 was a strong tour, with many many nights of standout performances.

While the night before was an official dicks picks release, this show takes the cake.

An 83 show that should not be missed is
6-20-83 grabaski
9-2-83
This one
10-22-83

Peace

I've enjoyed this gig for years as well. I really like the Playin>China Doll. Nice creepy transition.

Also as for Sugaree's....TDIH 1984 Hartford features a damn fine one as well with a 21 minute PITB to boot.

Gonna give this one a spin even though this has become a perplexingly pitiful thread.

If a person can't find anything to appreciate in the Grateful Dead of the 80's (or any year,for that matter), then it is his or her (or its) loss only! Also, it leaves more room for us who do!

P.S. WT & co. aaren't invited to my threads!

Ha! Well, of course, my motto is "I don't need no stinkin' invitation to blather on about nonsense!" (and I've proven repeatedly that I can blather with the best--er, worst--of them!). Not that this means post 71 threads are always nonsense; I can bring any thread down to a no sense level with a single post.

That's it as far as I can see. A two-and-a-half-year layoff is hardly overdoing it.

You, sir, like the coming of Spring and the migration of the hummingbird (their arrival in small old mining town here in AZ is a spectacular event) are one of the true constants in the universe.

Yes; they spend summers thereabouts, elsewhere N of "our" border, and we see them in AZ en route to pts S. They stop off for a few days to restock, etc., and have been well studied hereabouts as result. Folks needed to get their weight on a daily basis so erected a tall pole with an inverted scale on top knowing they'd (hummers) pick it as a "lookout"; using binos the scientists could read the wt of the birds every few minutes over the course of a few days to see how efficiently they gained wt to continue their journey.

This bit of hijack natural history brought to you for no particular reason other than I am working on the "bird lecture"...

That's a very clever solution. I'm angling to do a series of books about real life, active in the field scientists and what they actually do (not long dead founding fathers and big concepts) and that's the kind of problem solving ingenuity that would fit right in. Maybe nothing will come of it but there's some interest so we shall see.

Anna's hummingbird is the most common in my neck of the woods, Portland, OR. A couple years ago my son and I discovered one of their nests. It was a really cool experience.

I've listened to DP6 more than any other DP. The 15th is every bit as great as it's 14th brother.

The Anna's have come east to AZ, over the past 100 yrs or so the story goes, and they are aggressive little buggers. Beat up on our two natives, Costa's (below, as beautiful as the Rufous, in my eyes), and Blk Chinned (hmmm, "Blk Chinned Wind"...? Nah).

Before I came to AZ I always thought of hummingbirds as cute. Didn't take long before I realized they are also quite nasty. Watching them divebomb each other (and the occasional pedestrian) has provided hours of entertainment.

Ah, well, I could never oppose it when you put it so sweetly...and these little hummingbirds have me busy this afternoon so I won't be looking too closely anyhow; these males are so beautiful--stark contrast with the worn out old farts on XY side of the Forum, that's for sure (hmmm, sorry, don't mean to scare you off or anything).

I love the BRxRB. It is about one of the most "uptempo" versions I have ever heard. I wish the boys had played at this speed more often---they're really a good Rock band when they aren't riding the range or playing with dolls.

The LIG has that same beat.

Good stuff,
